Schmidt Nips Robie for Record

Last 'M' Survivor, Fehrs, Makes Finals

Special To The Daily
AMES, Iowa-Southern Cal and
Indiana began to pull away from
the pack in the NCAA Swimming
and Diving championships here
yesterday as records were broken
or tied in each of the five events
The Trojans took over the lead
at the end of the second day with
1851/2 points, placing swimmers in
every event. Indiana's Hoosiers
remained close behind with 1761/
points as they also added to their
total in every race.,
Michigan fell deeper into third
place with 124 points, but kept a
substantial lead over Yale 661/5),
Ohio State (631/2), and Southern
Methodist (50%).
Sets New Mark
Indiana's Fred Schmidt started
the night with a first in the 200-
yard butterfly, beating Carl Robie
by only three feet. Schmidt's time
of 1:51.4 established a new NCAA
and American record. Robie's sec-
ond place effort of 1:52.1 also bet-
tered the old record of 1:53.5.
Hoosier Tom Tretheway then
proceeded to erase the NCAA mark
in the 200-yard breaststroke with
a clocking of 2:10.4. The Wolver-
ines' ace, Paul Scheerer, had to
settle for a fourth place tie with
sophomore Wayne Anderson of
USC. Scheerer's time of 2:13.9 was
:00.1 second faster than that of
Anderson, but the judges called it
a tie.
Dilley Ties Record
Gary Dilley, Michigan State's
Olympian, tied the collegiate mark
of 1:56.2 in the 200-yard back-

Bennett by :00.4 second. Pete
Hammer of Indiana finished third,
and was followed by Wolverine
captain Ed Bartsch and Russ
Kingery. Both were timed in
1:58.0, but the judges awarded
Bartsch the fourth spot.
Southern Cal picked up its only
first of the night when Roy Saari
won his second individual title in
as many nights by topping the
NCAA record in the 200-yard free-
style. His time of 1:42.9 clipped
:01.5 seconds off th~e old record
held by Yale's Steve Clark. Clark
finished second in the race with
a 1:43.4.
Farley Seventh
Michigan's Bill Farley swam the
eight lengths in 1:45.4, and tied
Yale's Ed Townsend for seventh
place. His time was nearly :00.3
second faster than the time which
gave him the Big Ten champion-
ship three weeks ago.
Wolverines Rich Walls and Bob
Hoag tied with Jim McIniny of
SMU for ninth with a time of

In the last event of the night,
the 200-yard individual medley,
Ohio State's Bob Hooper knocked!
:00.1 second off the American
record with a clocking of 1:58.1 to
beat Southern .Cal's Rich Mc-
Geagh. Saari, the defending
champion in this event, passed up
the race to swim the 200-freestyle.
Seven Up
With seven events remaining
for tonight, Indiana stands a good
chance to win its first NCAA
swimming championship. The
Hoosiers could pick up all the
points they'll need in the three-
meter diving, one of their strong-
est events. Diving was the decid-
ing factor in Indiana's fifth
straight Big Ten championship.
Michigan stands to add points
in every event today, but the
depth of the Trojans and Hoosiers
will most likely leave the Wol-
verines in third. The schedule of
events includes the 100-yard races
in the freestyle, butterfly, breast-
strokb, and backstroke, the 400-

'M' Golfers
Advance in
Miami Meet
Special To The Daily
MIAMI-Michigan's golf team
continued to amaze their Southern
hosts here yesterday with second
and third round scores of 313 and
295 to maintain their position
within the top five of the Miami
Invitational Tournament..
Although their second-round
score dropped the Wolverines from
third place to a tie for fourth,
their afternoon round assured
them of a rise in the standings.
The team standings after 54 holes,
however, were not available.
Officially, Michigan's linksmen
are now tied with Florida South-
ern for fourth place, while Florida
continues to lead the twenty-one
team field with a score of 582,
followed by Florida State and Rol-
lins with 584 and 600 respectively.
One Round Left
Only a single round today re-
mains to be played.
"I'm extremely pleased-in fact,
I'm amazed," said Wolverine men-
tor Bert Katzenmeyer after Fri-
day's action. "I'm confident we'll
finish within the top five after the
good movedwe made in the after-
noon round."
Katzenmeyer was especially
pleased with the team's perform-
ance in relation to their Big Ten
opponents participating in the
meet. Ohio State trailed the Wol-
verines by two after 36 holes with
614, while Northwestern and Mich-
igan State carded scores of 624
and 635 respectively.
Bill Newton led the Wolverines
in yesterday's action with rounds
of 78 and 72 for a 150 day's total.
His 72 included a sizzling 33 on
the front side of the Coral Gables

Coupled with Thursday's 74,
Newton's 150 puts him in a tie for
the Michigan team leadership for
the tournament with Frosty Eva-
shevski, who- added a 73-78-151
to his opening round 73, for an
identical 224 total.

ably slower than was expected yes-

Miscellaneous meanderings of an iconoclast.
A favorite journalist of mine is H. L. Mencken who wrote his
biting and cynical commentaries a generation ago. I came across this
sample of the Mencken wit the other day.
"An author, like any other so-called artist, is a man in whom
the normal vanity of all men is so vastly exaggerated that he finds
it a sheer impossibility to keep it in. His overpowering impulse is to
gyrate before his fellow men, flapping his wings and emitting defiant
yells. This being forbidden by the police of all civilized countries, he
takes it out by putting his yells on paper. Such is the thing called

Bill Buntin will join a field of 20
players in today's East - West
basketball game at Lexington, Ky.
The Wolverine standout will
start for the East squad.
The game will be broadcast live
starting at 2 p.m., by WKBD-TV
(Channel 50). A taped repeat will
be shown at 6 p.m.
In an era of the big man in
college basketball, the balance of
power in this game may hinge on
the East's lack of little ones.
"We've got only one guard on
this team," said East Coach Joe
Lapchick of St. John's (NY).
"The West has fourgood ones,
and we don't have anyone who
can handle the ball." Ken Mc-
Intyre of St. John's is the East
lone back court man.

Benedict Cites Pitching
As Team's Weakness


In 15 years of observing sports, from lacrosse to curling,
I've never seen a beatnik athlete. This is not to condemn either
breed, but evidently the two are mutually exclusive. Just once,
though, I would love to see someone win the Heisman Trophy or
the National League Most Valuable Player Award and accept it
wearing jeans and sporting long hair and a beard.

The five foul disqualification rule is no longer suitable for college!
basketball. Basketball is the only sport which banishes a man after
five minor violations. In football, a man doesn't have to leave the
game if he is found guilty of going off side too often. In hockey a
player spends time in the penalty box, but he isn't forced to leave the
game entirely.
One possible solution for this intolerable rule is to give the oppo-
sition an extra free throw if a man commits more than five fouls.
Another alternative would be to give the team the ball out of bounds
after the free throw, as with a technical foul.
I marvel at the splendid coordination of a great athlete like
Bill Bradley, Willie Mays, or Valerie Brumel, but in a different
way I am amazed by the coordination of a good short order cook.
Anybody who can keep track of eight hamburgers, four grilled
cheese sandwiches, a vat of french fries, and six scrambling eggs,
while still managing to carry on a running argument with five
waitresses and turn over fried eggs without breaking a one, earns
my admiration.

If somehow.George Wallace and Martin Luther King could play
on the same touch football team, it might do wonders to improve race
relations in Alabama. Sport can do strange things to break down
preconceived hatreds.
One of the most thrilling moments I've ever seen in a football
game came in a North-South all-star game played in Miami three
years ago. It was the first year that Negro players were allowed in
the game, and Willie Richardson, an end from all Negro Jackson State
College in Mississippi, was starting for the South. The Yankees were
winning 21-17 with 15 seconds to go, but the South team was on the
North 20-yard line. It was the spot for an all or nothing pass.
Richardson zoomed down the sidelines with the snap of the ball,
and brdke into the open. The quarterback lofted a pass toward the
end zone and Richardson leaped into the air to grab'it for a touch-
down as the gun sounded to end the game. One of the other South
receivers, a back from Mississippi, ran over to Richardson, leaped
into his arms and hugged him with a football player's grasp. Sud-
denly the other members of the South team mobbed the Negro and
carried him off the field on their shoulders.
It made me think that even Southerners could be human.

Snow, sleet, rain-obviously it's
baseball season in Ann Arbor.
Coach Moby Benedict was quite
disappointed not only with the
weather, but with the Michigan
diamondmen's dismal 1-7 record
on their recent spring trip to
Arizona,. "We still have plenty of
1 work to do before we are ready
for our conference opener against
Wisconsin," he said yesterday.
The team will take on the
Badgers April 23 in Ann Arbor.
Benedict pointed out that the
Arizona tour was the first time
the team had played outside, and
the oulook is not as bleak as it
would appear on first glance. "Of
course, we never like to lose, but
the trip serves other purposes than
just getting a chance to play. If
we just wanted competition, we
could go to Virginia, but Arizona
has some really fine teams and
the quality of the competition is

really high."
The coach pointed out that the
Arizona swing primarily serves to
uncover the weaknesses in the
team and to see who can perform
well under game situat ons.
The Wolverines' only spring vic-
tory came in their first game
against Arizona State, 6-3. "Our
biggest weakness is pitching, but
there's plenty of room for im-
provement everywhere," Benedict
continued. "The pitchers can't win
with last year's reputations alone."
The coach went on to say that
Bob Reed is the only pitcher ready
to start the season right now.
The team's composite earned run
average was 6.96, a figure which
puts a pretty heavy burden on the
hitters. And while Benedict cer -
tainly figures the pitching staff4
to improve their statistics, he feels
the hitters have been doing their,
The top sluggers are in the out-
